Loud Poets Presents: Homer to Hip Hop


How has spoken word poetry voiced revolution in the UK? And how can it spark revival today?

Loud Poets present a thought-provoking evening of performances and discussion about UK spoken word poetry. Don’t miss the only 2021 Scottish performance of Pete the Temp’s dynamic show Homer to Hip Hop: a People’s History of Spoken Word. Exploring the past and present of UK spoken word poetry, this is ‘a charming wild rumpus of a ride – part lecture, part performance and utterly engaging’ (Tongue Fu).

Loud Poets’ own Dr. Katie Ailes hosts and shares some of her own fascinating scholarship into the genre through an innovative poetry performance.

The evening concludes with an audience Q&A with both performers.

Whether you’re a spoken word fan, a newcomer to the genre, or a poet yourself, join us for an entertaining, immersive look into this remarkable art form.
